Sarah Porcelli

Location: West Sussex

Status: Accepting Mentees

Career

Head of Talent & Development at Southern Water.

Experienced, organisational development leader, having working in a cross section of roles within the United Kingdom and Australia over the last 16 years. Whether it’s building a new function or team, or helping an existing team to grow, learn and outperform, my emotional intelligence and adaptive leadership style has assisted me to deliver results that support the overall business vision and strategy. Throughout my career I have demonstrated a strong track record for designing, implementing and improving cultural leadership development programmes, employee engagement, talent management and revitalising cultural initiatives; often during times of significant business disruption, turbulence or change. I strive on working in an ever changing challenging environment and have developed the ability to translate organisational change strategies into exciting programmes of work that inspire people and puts talent identification and development at the heart of the organisation’s values.

Previous Roles:
Head of Learning & Development – UK Power Networks
Talent & Development Manager – UK Power Networks
Organisational Development Consultant – SA Power Networks
Organisational Development Consultant – PKF Consulting

Why I Became a Mentor

I enjoy supporting and developing others to grow. Mentoring provides the opportunity to help others navigate through situations where your experiences/perspectives can help to ease the way. It’s also about giving something back – I’ve had so many brilliant mentors and I’d like to pay it forward.
